    I've been having an issue with my yahoo mail on my droid. I set it up properly and it works fine, i get all my emails with no problems. My only issue is like every 2-3 days i get duplicates of the same emails sent to me again that i got 2-3 days ago. They only show up on the phone though. They never show up on the actual web page. Anybody have any ideas?

    I definitely get the notifications, thats not an issue at all. Just keep getting duplicates of emails i already received and deleted like 2-3 days later.

    The Task Killer could be a reason why you are not getting any notifications but I'm not 100% sure.

    I have the same issue. I also noticed that when I send email from my device with my yahoo email, for some reason I'll stick like a couple hundred copies of the same message in my "sent" folder. This silly thing has put about 4000 messages in my outbox in the past couple of days. I wish I had an answer for why it works.....but I don't think its related to task killer. I think it has to do with yahoo mail and the droid interface to it (which is a huge kludge).

    I'm having both issues. When I delete an email through the phone it can re-appear later on. If I delete it on a PC then I'm good.

    Also when sending via the phone I get spammed with a bunch of duplicate messages in my 'sent' folder, kind of annoying :mad:

    Replicating Sent Mail

    If your outgoing set-up is "smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com" using Port 587 (as most of the "how to's" on getting Yahoo Mail to work on the Droid seem to suggest), try switching the Port to "25." That seems to have solved the sent mail problem for me. I'm on Verizon; some of these problems/solutions as times seem carrier-specific.
